TV Preview: "Gay, Straight or Taken?"

TV Preview: "Gay, Straight or Taken?"


In addition to "The White Rapper Show," tonight brings the premiere of another reality show I can't decide whether to love or loathe: "Gay, Straight or Taken?" on Lifetime. It's a dating show of sorts, in which one woman meets three men and has to figure out — you guessed it — who's gay, who's taken, and who's straight (and single). If she gets it right, she and the available hottie win a vacation. If she's wrong, the guy she mistakenly tagged as straight and single gets the prize instead.

The promos for the series, which starts tonight at 8 p.m., show the women putting the men through some fairly stereotypical paces — throwing a football, doing yoga, dancing. So I'm left wondering, is this a lighthearted dating version of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," or is it borderline offensive?

Lifetime claims it's a guessing game we all play already, and the network has a point there (although downloading a scorecard to play along at home seems a bit too much). Check out the promo and tell me what you think — will you watch "Gay, Straight or Taken?"
